8/10 Jim 20 June 2014

Driftmachine are a Berlin-based electronic duo comprised of Andreas Gerth (Tied & Tickled Trio) and Florian Zimmer (Saroos). This, their debut album, offers up seven weighty chunks of immersive, dub inflected, late night electronica. Claiming to have been inspired by Alex Ross’ The Rest Is Noise, they incorporate a range of experimental audio textures, pushing the sound beyond the generic confines of dubsteb or dub techno so that it nods as much in the direction of Mika Vainio as Rhythm & Sound or Pole.

The deftly programmed rhythms and skanking basslines are nicely augmented by clattering, almost industrial shards of metallic percussion receding on delay lines into the darkness and synth lines processed into morphing, alien forms. It’s a spacious, minimal sounding album but has been crafted with immense attention to detail that reminds me of Monolake in its cinematic expansiveness. Perfect headmusic for a journey deep into the night.

Been on high rotation in our house. Sounds good well in the background or proper loud. It's a hit with me (mainly into electro and electronic oddness), the Mrs (mainly into metal and prog rock) and our 4 year old daughter (mainly into Sound of Music). It's got lovely deep production and a real musicality to it.
